Back to Nature Bee's Wings

By
Home Stager with Stage-Show-Sell

I'm new to the photography group

It appears that many of you are professionals with your camera.  I'm a point and click person.  Tricking up the flash is the most adventurous that I get.

This is one of my favorite photos.  It was taken in the summer in my back yard.  The intent was to get the center of the flower that was heavy with pollen.

This is what I got

bee wings
The pollen is visable on the body.  Feel and hear the wings move.

I can barely photograph stationary objects let alone bees wings moving a billion miles an hour.  Good job.

I've been out of town for the last few weeks.  No internet !!!!!!!!!!!

I realy can't say ow close I was.   Lets just say I was close enough that I heard his wings :-)

My goal was to take a photo of the flower and the bee just happened to drop in.

Any camera can take great pictures as long as you are willing to try.  So many people won't take a shot because they don't think it would be perfect.  Yours is great.

The yard was full of bees that day and it really was fun taking this photo.  On days like today I love looking at it.  It's so cold and windy outside that the bee photo warms me up.

 

When taking pics like this all it takes is patience and take LOT of them and maybe one will be good.

Thanks for all of your compliments.
